Manchester City could make a move for Jack Grealish in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Star. The player rose through the youth ranks to Aston Villa’s first-team in 2013/14 and has gone on to make 195 appearances in all competitions, scoring 30 goals with 37 assists.

Grealish has been one of the league’s top performers this season as is now starting in competitive games for England, so his stock couldn’t be higher. The Daily Star say he has a £70m asking price and Villa have no obligation to accept less.

Grealish has five years remaining on his deal and the Midlands outfit aren’t short of cash with billionaire owners, so City may have to break transfer record to bring him to the Etihad Stadium. The 25-year-old has created more chances (19) than Riyad Mahrez (9) and Raheem Sterling (8) this season, so he’d improve our squad.
